it is that kind of case. lots of holes for defense lawyers to attack. lots of bits and pieces for prosecutors to try to piece together to tell the story. prosecutors admit they are missing a so-called smoking gun in their case against michael johnson, but they are asking jurors to find them guilty of murdering 16-year-old phylicia barnes by stringing together the mostly circumstantial evidence they have. it is not one thing, prosecutor said, it is everything. take each piece and put it together. prosecutors believe johnson was romantically interested in phylicia barnes and jealous of time she spent with others. an inmate said he saw the body. in state's evidence shows order for that witness to be believed, johnson would have had to argue with her, forced her to have sex, deal with her crying,
5:17 pm
and took her to death, call the witness, consult with him, and move her body in a storage bin within a 30--- a 30-minute window. no phone record was presented to back up the story. it does not make sense and it is not possible, defense lawyers argued. despite the work of four law enforcement agencies over two years, they argued the biggest answers are missing. who, what, when, how, and why, defense argued. the state still has not answered. clear motive is one of those big pieces of the puzzle and it does not have a clear answer. the jury started deliberating at 4:00 p.m. and we have not heard from them at this point. >> thank you. there they are. they are getting off that delta flight in from new orleans. the super bowl champions.
